After Bryan Singer revealed on Twitter that the next film in the X-Men franchise following X-Men: Days of Future Past would be X-Men: Apocalypse, he divulged some more news about the already developing sequel. Last night, Singer uploaded a picture to Twitter saying, "Late night X-Men Apocalypse story session." The photo showed Singer with writer Simon Kinberg (shepherding Fox's comic book universe with X-Men and Fantastic Four) and ComingSoon noticed Mike Dougherty and Dan Harris were the other two writers in the room. You may not know them by name, but you know their work on X2: X-Men United.
Aside from that tidbit, we don't really know what to expect from the X-Men sequel. However, our recent spoiler scoop about the credits bumper in X-Men: Days of Future Past does give us a glimpse of what we can expect from the iconic comic book villain named in the title. In addition, it's also been said that this new sequel will likely follow only the X-Men: First Class cast, so we might not see original franchise members like Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen or Patrick Stewart show up (the latter two were clueless about the project when asked about it recently). Still, it sounds like this is all coming together quickly. so stay tuned. Otherwise, X-Men: Days of Future Past arrives in theaters on May 23rd, 2014.
